Speaking of the Former Soviet Union...

Since they've already pilloried at least one Dem for comparing our gulag with that of the Soviets... what the hell.

Had there ever been any "truth in Pravda" or "news in Izvestia" it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to imagine we might have read something like this (substitute KGB for CIA):

CIA chief sacked for opposing torture

The CIA's top counter-terrorism official was fired last week because he opposed detaining Al-Qaeda suspects in secret prisons abroad, sending them to other countries for interrogation and using forms of torture such as "water boarding", intelligence sources have claimed.
Thanks to Eric Alterman for pointing this out in The Times.

Oh, and a big "Thanks" to our domestic media for being such idiots that we have to go to a London paper to read about this.
